Hi All,

I am currently doing some Data Entry for work and I am just wondering if there is a more efficient way to do my task. Currently I am gathering total quantities of lumber used on one house, for all our houses, and finding the average lumber quantities for those lots. The trouble I am currently having with my pivot table is that I need the "sum" function to add together multiple deliveries of the same type of material when I minimize the house lot, but when I minimize the type of material i would like to see the average across all lots of the same table. Currently when I try to average it, it averages everything, including my multiple deliveries listed under the house lot, so when i minimize the house lot is shows the average across the deliveries instead of the sum. Please view photos and let me know if there is a simple way to figure this out without me having to copy and paste my table and manually average every subsection ( there will be hundreds) thank you!

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
